Yes you read it right, Another Contest!!


This contest will be running throughout the entire month of August to promote our August Group Reads!


What will I be winning?
A book of your choice from your TBR pile. Yes you read this right! YOUR CHOICE!
**Note: This book must be available to get within reason, obviously if its out of print and I need to purchase it from ebay for 200 bucks because its so rare then I won't be able to do that! lol

What do I need to do in order to be eligable?
Easy! We have TWO group reads for the month of August. Read both of these books in the month of August and then write a review about them! Your review can be here on Goodreads or a personal blog, as long as the review is written!
Note: If the review is written on a blog or outside of Goodreads you must provide a link to the review for us to verify.

Keep in mind, you have the entire month of August to do this in, and even if you don't like the book thats ok! Your review can be good or bad, after all no one is expecting you to love every book! Right? :D

How do I enter?!
Once you meet the requirements just post here to let us know! (with the link of your review if its outside of Goodreads)

How will you be doing the entries?
Easy! As long as you meet the requirements listed above, you will be entered to win! If there are more then one (which I hope there will be!) then I will use a random number generator to assign the winner! (with each entry given a number)


Eligible Entries:
Sarah
Amanda

Thanks you two :) I am hoping people will enjoy the new additions to the group!

I plan to do stuff like this often throughout the year.

Woot thank you :D Awesome reviews btw!


message 8: by AmandaG (new)

AmandaG (amandag3) | 73 comments Oops, read the September group read. Doh! Does Lover Avenged count as one of the August reads? If not, I need to get on one of the others.

Hmm well I guess technically there are 3 for August arent there!?

We are doing away with the Series read (August being the last month) since we had a lack of interest according to the chatter.

However, since August IS the last month I WILL accept 2 out of the three listed.

So here are the three August reads:

A Rush of Wings

Edge Of Hunger

Lover Avenged

I will accept 2 out of the three listed! Come September we will be down to 2 monthly group reads :)

I am sorry about the confusion! Sometimes I forget you guys are not in our heads hehe.

AmandaG (amandag3) | 73 comments Thanks Tricia! Got Rush of Wings on hold at library. Surprise trip to beach this weekend for my birthday, so I'll have plenty of time to get in some reading!


message 11: by AmandaG (new)

AmandaG (amandag3) | 73 comments P.S- I feel dumb I couldn't tell the difference between August book read and September book read. Ha!

Thanks Amanda!

Only a couple more days left! No one else wants a free book?!

♦Jennifer♦ (thejenneral) | 83 comments Ohh, this looks so cool. I only wish that I started in the group sooner so that I could've given it a go.I can't wait to get started on next months books, so that I can get a chance to win. ;)

We plan to do contests often, the goal I think is one a month (this month we kicked off with two hehe).

Last day to get your review links in for this contest!

I may wait a few months to hold another if we dont have that much interest in the contests - I might make a poll so check for that.

Random number generator chooses you Amanda! (it had a super hard time what with the whole 2 numbers! /cackles!)

Congrats! Please send me a PM with your address and the book on your TBR pile that you wish to have :)

I hope in the future we have more participants!
